I know how to make a pretty decent pot of rice on the stove but just "inherited" a rice cooker and would like to try making it in that. Alas their is no measuring cup with it. Can I use the same measurements ...1 cup Basmatti rice ( soaked for 15 mins) to 1 3/4 cup of water? Can I saute the rice in the cooker too? I normally make Indian style. Any other tips would be mucho appreciated.
